Home Spun comic strip #328

I've had people ask me this question more than the socialization question. Maybe it's because of where we live. It makes me wonder if kindergarten through 12th grade is just one long prep course for college. Ironically, by the time I was a senior in high school, I was so burnt out from academics I decided to take a break from school for a year.

I have never pushed the issue of college on my children. I know that if it interests them at some point, they will do what is necessary to get a college degree. Right now, Marina is tenth grade age and has so many interests she gets panicky at the thought of higher education. I try to allay her fears by telling her of my college experience, but I know it will take a while to warm her to the idea of college. Frankly, I would be happy if at least one of them decides to go into a trade. I think a plumber or electrician in the family would be useful.

And why not? It's becoming more and more common these days. =)

Not that I'm homeschooling my children in college either... =D

Good reply!
Glad to hear Marina's back safe and sound. When you finally go to bed after Tetris, do you still see blocks falling when you close your eyes? I looked at your map game and instantly got out. No way would I know. An Aussie one would be easy. Only 7 states to remember, and most quite large.
Blessings,
Paula
